Antiepileptic drug (AED) treatment in epilepsy is often compromised by the unpredictability of efficacy and inter-individual variability among patients, which at least in part is the result of genetic variation. The idea to determine an individual's response to a prescribed medicine came into inception around 29 years ago. Pharmacogenetics is used to(More)
Deferiprone is used as a chelation agent in chronic iron overload in β-thalassemia patients. Patients on deferiprone therapy show variable response to this drug in terms of reduction in iron overload as well as adverse drug reactions (ADRs). The pharmacogenetic studies on deferiprone have not carried out in patients with blood disorders in India. Therefore,(More)
The idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) is a neurological disorder which accounts for approximately 30% of all epilepsy cases. Patients identified with IGE syndromes have pharmacoresponsive epilepsies without abnormal neurological symptoms, structural brain lesions and are of unknown origin. A genetic etiology to IGEs has been proposed. Gamma amino(More)
Inappropriate activation of the Hh signaling pathway has been implicated in the development of several types of cancers including prostate, lung, pancreas, breast, brain and skin. Present study identified the binding affinities of eight established inhibitors viz., Cyclopamine, Saridegib, Itraconazole, LDE-225, TAK-441, BMS-833923 (XL139), PF-04449913 and(More)
A 59-year-old white alcoholic female was transferred to ER by ambulance at 04:52 a.m. for lethargy, disorientation, weakness, falls, and headache for few days. She was only drinking alcohol for few days but not eating. She had history of hypertension, and she was taking Lorazepam 2 mg thrice daily, Ramipril 2.5 mg once daily and Hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg(More)
Certain minerals and trace elements are essential for the development of healthy nervous system. Altered serum levels of these elements may lead to the development of various diseases including epilepsy. The present study was designed to evaluate the association of serum calcium, magnesium, zinc and copper in the development of genetic generalized epilepsy(More)
BACKGROUND Approaches in disruption of MDM2-p53 interactions have now emerged as an important therapeutic strategy in resurrecting wild type p53 functional status. The present study highlights virtual screening strategies in identification of high affinity small molecule non-peptidic inhibitors. Nutlin3A and RG7112 belonging to compound class of(More)
Methods In this randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, we recruited women aged 16 years and older with a clinical diagnosis of post-partum haemorrhage after a vaginal birth or caesarean section from 193 hospitals in 21 countries. We randomly assigned women to receive either 1 g intravenous tranexamic acid or matching placebo in addition to(More)
UNLABELLED Phenytoin (PHT) and Carbamazepine (CBZ) are excellent sodium channel blockers administered in clinical treatment of epileptic seizures. However, the narrow therapeutic range and limited pharmacokinetics of these drugs have raised serious concerns in the proper management of epilepsy. To overcome this, the present study attempts to identify a(More)
